A date

with my daughter!

She requested it months ago... 
"Mom, can we have a day out together before school starts?"
How could I say no to that?
She planned it, brought the money she earned this summer, and was in charge of the itinerary.  She included the two most basic elements of a successful day of retail therapy:  fun stores and stops for ice cream and food at both ends.
I showed up, drove us around and ate the treats.  She knows how to shop, I will say that.
It was sweet.  
(And so is she)

What a sweet girl to spoil her Mom and to spend the day with her. Glad you had fun.
